Healthy protein pancakes infused with chocolate flavor will help you hit your macro goals without sacrificing taste. Perfect for breakfast, dessert, or even a post-workout snack!
One of my most popular breakfast meal prep recipes is protein pancakes.
Because you guys like it so much, I wanted to share my favorite variation – chocolate protein pancakes!
Not only are they nutritious, but they also taste amazing, with a rich chocolate flavor that will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast looking for a protein packed post-workout meal or you just want to switch up your morning routine, these are a must-try!
- Eggs – I used large eggs.
- Protein Powder – I used this chocolate protein powder, which I highly recommend. It has the best flavor of any protein powder I’ve tasted and no artificial sweeteners.
- Baking Powder – You could leave this out if you’d prefer, but it does help give your pancakes a bit of volume, which they desperately need.
- Liquid – You can use any liquid – water, almond milk, whole milk, etc.

How To Make
- Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk until well-combined or add to a blender and puree until blended.
- Add 1/3 cup of the batter to a skillet that’s been preheated over medium-high heat. Cook a few minutes on each side.
- Make them extra chocolatey. Add chocolate chips or even a few tablespoons of cocoa powder to make these burst with even more chocolate flavor.
- Use a non-stick pan. Using a non-stick pan or griddle will help prevent the pancakes from sticking and make them easier to flip.
- Let the batter rest. Letting the batter rest for a few minutes before cooking will allow the ingredients to meld together and the baking powder to react – giving the pancakes a more desirable texture.
What to serve with
- Sliced Banana
- Nut Butter
- Chocolate Sauce
- Chocolate Chips
- Coconut Cream
How to store
Keep these pancakes sealed in any airtight container you’d prefer and stored in the refrigerator.
Portion them out into individual meal prep containers for convenient breakfast or keep them all together in Ziploc bags.
They keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Can you freeze them?
Yes! You can keep these chocolate protein pancakes in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Can you reheat them?
Yes, you can reheat them in the oven, toaster oven, or microwave. If using a microwave, place a damp paper towel on top to help keep them from drying out.
Can you make the batter ahead of time?
Yes, the batter can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Just store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I use a large mason jar.Print
